I would like to ask for clarification as to when something is good (answer ‘yes’) and when not (answer ‘no’).
My current approach is as follows:
I listen to the recording, and if I hear what is spoken in the recording (and no additional words, and of course no words missing), then it is okay for me. I do not care about accents, background noise, etc.
Examples where I would give “no”:
- “I am going to” vs. “I’m gonna”
- “the farmer” vs. “the farmers”
- “He told me not to.” vs. “He told me not.”
Does that make sense?
What are your thoughts?
Overall, I have the impression there is no crap content in the recordings, only small slips from time to time.
